Motacilla samveasnae

The Motacilla samveasnae is classified as Near Threatened (NT), is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.

Range & population Motacilla samveasnae is known, in the breeding season, from a substantial length of the River Mekong and several of its tributaries in Cambodia, extending upstream from Kampi into southern Laos, and there is a record from the non-breeding season in Thailand. In optimal habitat, linear densities may reach many pairs per kilometre, and its numbers are certainly healthy in Cambodia.
